This 1968 Chevrolet Chevelle SS396 is a real-deal Super Sport with
its numbers-matching big block. While that should already make you
quite excited, you're going to see more original-style components
that make this a standout even amongst other true SS cars.
This coupe has an iconic presence. The blacked-out grille,
form-fitting bumpers, and all that complete trim is exactly the
kind of look that made the '60s a legendary era for the best muscle
cars with flair. And a set of 15-inch American Racing Torque Thrust
wheels are a great period-correct way to add style and aggression.
Island Teal is a pretty cool factory color to have. It was only
offered on in 1968, and so while the application isn't absolutely
perfect on this example, it has an underling specialness that Chevy
fans will love even before you give it a respray. Plus, the
sheetmetal is straight, the gaps are good, the rubber is nice, and
the details are complete, which all makes this one quite
impressive. The trim tag tells us this was correctly born with a
black vinyl roof, and that harmonizes with the Super Sport's
correct black lower section for a well-coordinated mix of sporty
Inside is more distinction with the factory-correct medium teal.
Born a bucket seat car, the button-top presentation makes this
coupe feel premium and sporty all in the first glance. The door
panels are intricate and complete; the headliner is taut; and the
dash is clean. So it all makes for a nice place to spend some time.
There's even a vintage-style AM/FM digital tuner to upgrade your
driving music. But the best feeling of all comes from grabbing the
three-spoke steering wheel in your left hand, and gripping the
horseshoe shifter with your right one. It gives you muscle car
senses the tingle of something special is about to happen.
When the 396 cubic-inch V8 under the hood is the numbers-matching
unit, you know you're always going to be showing it off. That's why
this one is so well presented with the bold block radiating from
within the smooth black inner walls of the engine bay. And it even
has nice touches like the tidy wires, bright valve covers, and
matching air topper with callouts. The big V8 inhales deeply
through a correct-style Rochester Quadrajet four-barrel carburetor,
and it makes a powerful rumble as it exhales through the dual
exhaust. The stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission has a
partial VIN match, and it sends power to a proper 12-bolt rear end
that's date coded to likely be original, too.
This is the real-deal SS396 that has all the original pieces you
want and even terrific details that few other people have. So if
you want a true muscle car icon of distinction, call today!
